So off to the computer we go and a quick google images search brings up several great pictures of Dash and several pictures of rubbish baggy store bought costumes.
"No I want one that's tight like the real Dash".
"OK but if I make it tight will you actually wear it?"
Time to dredge through all those boxes of vintage patterns (I knew I hoarded them for a reason) and success!
I made up the suit and tried it on to adjust for his overall slim build, then we were on to the finer details. The 'pants' were made from the leotard pattern above which just left the gloves. I bought the Zuzzy Plum Princess Glove pattern which doubles perfectly as superhero gloves :-)
Let's finish with an action shot!
